Mike Stinson & Johnny Irion Release “Working My Way Down” Today
Long ago in a land far away, also known as the San Fernando Valley mid 90s, Mike Stinson and Johnny Irion lived and wrote songs in an old farmhouse behind a rehearsal studio called The Alley. Already accomplished musicians working as sidemen in other bands, together they studied the elements of songwriting by dissecting the greats and honed these chops into a uniquely cool hybrid country fried rock sound of their own.

The Funeral March Drops New EP Inspired By Greek Mythology
Inspired by the Greek Queen of the Underworld, Persephone, The Funeral March has released five new songs during the season of transition between death and rebirth. These new tracks whisper of dreams, murmur of despair, cry out in madness, and reflect on hope and loss.
The new EP, Persephone calls upon the influence of The Cure and Siouxie & The Banshees, with blueprints drafted by Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’. It unleashes the urge to throw inhibitions aside under the restless moon.
Regarding the collaboration, NOTD remarked, “We’re so happy to finally have ‘AM:PM’ out in the world with our close friend Maia (Wright). This special song takes us back to our roots in pop/dance music and the feel good vibes that we love. We have lots of new music in the pipeline and to kick off this new chapter with a BOP like ‘AM:PM’ is so exciting. We can’t wait to give this one to our fans and we hope everyone likes it as much as we do.” Maia (Wright) added, “I’ve been a fan of NOTD’s music for a long time so it’s an honor to feature on this track with them. So excited for this collab and to perform this one live.”
The Boot recently noted how “Alabama native Jessie Wilson’s show-stopping vocals and thoughtful lyricism have been winning over listeners with a recent stream of stellar cuts from her upcoming debut EP” – the five-song collection, How ‘Bout We Find Out, is out today.

The Bad Plus release new song; tour with Marc Ribot
“I wrote ‘Electric Face’ in Kingston, NY during the summer of 2021, while listening to a lot of science podcasts,” says The Bad Plus founding bassist Reid Anderson. “When a caterpillar goes into the chrysalis and transforms into a moth, it basically dissolves and the structure is determined by an electrical pattern which is the guide that turns it from mush into a moth. There’s an electrical pattern in the face of the moth, and this is what inspired the song.”

Becoming a father is no exception. My life changed forever when Crawford came into this world. Suddenly, nothing was more important. Snow cones, Tonka trucks and sleepless nights began to take over my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m a better man because of my little man.”
